One note: bring cash. Prices are cheaper if you pay cash, probably about 40 cents per bottle. If you're buying an ass load of beer, keep this in mind
Jumper Jebus, this place is deceiving. A small corner store--with horrible parking--connected to a small cafe type area. It's a beer store. Beer. And lots of it. My ideal shop.
Coolers on either side, maybe 6 or 7 doors per side. Aisles in between, maybe 4 of those. So, not all that big, but beer sits everywhere. Stacks, coolers, shelves, floor. A lot of small time Oregon brewery brews around here, which is very nice.
Dudes working there like beer and are helpful. Next door is the cafe, with beer...to drink. That's enough for me, but it goes a step further and offers some rarities and goodies.
Wish I had more money and time to spend in here. Walked away with a case plus a mix 6er for just over $100. Gulp

Belmont Station was the first stop on our intense beer tour of Portland. And what a stop!
I entered through the "Bier Cafe", where the tap list is quite outrageous: HUB Kentucky Xmas, Struise Black Damnation, Blackberry Albert, Deschutes Black XXIII, Ninkasi Pravda, Goose Island Class of 88, Full Sail Imperial Porter '12... good shit! Bartenders are not the friendliest folks, but they are efficient enough. The bar section of the station is small and a bit cramped, but I still found room at the bar. The best is to go next door and browse for brews while drinking beer.
The retail area is also small but so chock-full of goodies, you won't believe it. There is a barrel-aged section, including Eclipse, Big Bad Baptist, Double DBA and Rye on Rye. Also a variety of Alesmith barrel-aged stuff and even a vintage shelf with a 2007 Abyss for 40 dollars.
Service here is much friendlier and helpful than at the bar. Prices are high, no doubt. Quality is obscene. This place is wow!

My go-to when visiting Portland. Nearly un-paralleled selection (and I love that they post the full list on the website), helpful staff, decent pricing. Only negative I can come up with is that the popular stuff will fly off the shelves here faster than other shops because of its popularity. But impressively they are able to keep most beers I'm looking for on the shelves!
Best bottle shop in Portland!
